Beginning July of 2014, the new Presidents of the Kenai, Soldotna, and Kenai River Clubs stepped into their leadership roles:  Scott Hamann/Kenai; Jodi Stuart/Soldotna; and Diane Taylor/Kenai River.
            The three of us were able to connect at the District Conference meeting earlier that year, and set up a plan to establish a monthly meeting of the three of us.  The purpose of these meetings was to facilitate collaboration and understanding of what other Rotarians in our communities were doing. (The three clubs are within approximately 12 miles of each other!)

            The three of us were able to connect at the PETS meeting earlier that year, and set up a plan to establish a monthly meeting of the three of us.  The purpose of these meetings was to facilitate collaboration and understanding of what other Rotarians in our communities were doing. (The three clubs are within approximately 12 miles of each other!)
            Since July 2014, we have continued that commitment to meet monthly and collaborate.  The results of this include:  serving as guest speakers for each other’s clubs; sharing information on potential speakers; establishing the first ever joint holiday gathering; being included in the emails sent out to the other club’s members; working jointly to bring programs to the community, and generally serving as a support network for each other.
            In February, the Soldotna and Kenai River Club will co-sponsor a Suicide Awareness program; this Spring we will invite our President Elects to join our monthly meetings to establish a rapport, in hopes that they will continue this practice into their terms as club presidents.
